365-294 & 295 My Students

Here they are... the goof balls!  I decided to take some school pictures.  The kids were being goof balls and acting silly.

We are beginning our 8th week of school.  Yes, and I am just now getting around to getting this post out.  My boy is in 11th grade and my girlie girl is in 7th.

This year I changed it up a bit for my boy.
We are enrolled in the College Plus program.  He will be getting his basic college classes through CLEP testing out of the way and also get high school credit. Those classes are Analyzing and Interpreting Literature, Sociology, and Biology 2 for the first semester and more for second semester.
Writing Co-op
Math, we will be using Chalk Dust Algebra 2.
Bible, we are using NKJV and Thinking Like a Christian.  As well as many books to encourage a deeper walk with Jesus.  Also, College Plus has a great program called Life Purpose Training for students to stay focused on God during high school and college.

My girlie girl is plugging away in 7th grade.

We will continue on with Sonlight for History, Literature and Read Alouds.  I have always loved this program and I always seem to go back to it. I always think of doing something different but my heart always go back.
Math- Chalk Dust Pre-Algebra
Science- Apologia General Science
Bible- Bright Lights
Vocabulary-Wordly Wise
Spelling Power
Easy Grammar
Writing Co-op

Last week was busy with family in town.  We were off a little but this week I am determined to be back on track.
